In this final video of 2021, the Avoiding Loneliness series, I talk about the connection between boundaries and codependency. There are many reasons one may feel lonely, however, low self-esteem can be a culprit, because you may struggle with believing you're enough, you're cared for, you're significant. All those emotions can indicate co-dependency. Co-dependency says, "I need others to help me feel complete." Caroline Leaf is one of many excellent experts on co-dependency. She has a podcast that will tell you a lot about how to work through this. I encourage you to explore this if you suspect you have tendencies in this area. Enter 2022 understanding that managing Boundaries is Freedom--once you understand the power of it.
